HOUSTON (AP) — A jury has awarded $32 million to the family of a Texas couple involved in a deadly crash with a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver.

The Jefferson County jury concluded the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based chain was partially responsible for the death of 65-year-old Ruth Christopher.

A Domino’s delivery driver lost control of his car while delivering a pizza in Beaumont in 2012 and hit a vehicle carrying Ruth and Devavaram Christopher. Ruth Christopher died the next day; her husband, now 70, was injured severely.

The accident was blamed on defective, worn tires on the delivery vehicle. The driver was also cited for speeding.

Jurors concluded Tuesday that Domino’s was partly responsible by not enforcing a policy that drivers’ vehicles be inspected.

A Domino’s spokesman says the company plans to appeal.
